kicks arse again - fuck yea!
America, home of the brave, corporate whores and global bully.
America: Your global government, whether you voted for them or not.

Just imagine doing something illegal to become a legal illegal alien. Where's a better place to go to prison? Plenty of time to work on getting a green card.
How much shilly-shallying was there

Bank employees refuse to accept bank security is weak!

what the dickens does this case have to do with the US?
Why extradited to the US? The crime was committed in Belarus. I bet it wasn't only US citizens who were defrauded. So Dimitry going to be extradited from the US to other countrys to face trial there.
